When I hear the words, “follow the lines,” I am reminded of the instructions I received as a child. The phrase was uttered to encourage me to stay within the lines while coloring on paper. The meaning, in this instance, is much different. This installment in my polyester stretch velvet revelations will introduce you to an art piece I call Follow the Lines.
Art Piece # 99 was assigned the name Follow the Lines because of the added quilting. The angular movement, of the stitches, is reminiscent of a corn maze one would explore.
As was mentioned earlier, this 7 3/4” x 9 3/4” portfolio installment was constructed primarily from polyester stretch velvet. The various layers were secured together with a fusible web and an iron. Making the item appears as if it were shrouded by a curtain is a very fine sheet of mesh. Although the specimen had a unique quality of its own it still needed quilting to complete the process. Complimenting the perimeter of the polyester fiber art piece is a border of black cotton fabric embellished with rows of straight-line quilting.
Follow the Lines, AP # 99 is now complete.
With warm regards for a spectacular day,
